A Delta Airlines Boeing 767 bound for Los Angeles from New York found itself in a precarious situation shortly after takeoff, forcing an emergency return to John F. Kennedy International Airport. US media outlet NPR reported that the aircraft's emergency exit slide detached mid-flight.

Delta Flight 520 successfully landed back at JFK Airport around 8:35 a.m. local time on Friday, April 26, following reports of a vibration from the crew, according to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The incident unfolded with the plane spending approximately 33 minutes in the air before safely returning to the ground.

In response to inquiries, a Delta spokesperson informed NPR that upon landing and reaching a gate, it was discovered that the emergency slide had become separated from the aircraft. The FAA has initiated an investigation into the incident to determine the cause and any potential safety implications.

Delta Airlines has pledged full cooperation with investigative efforts and is actively assisting in the retrieval of the detached emergency slide. Anonymously, a passenger aboard the flight recounted to NPR the harrowing experience, describing an intense noise within the aircraft that made it challenging to hear cockpit announcements. The passenger expressed feelings of being overwhelmed and frightened by the encounter.

The incident underscores the importance of rigorous safety protocols and swift response measures in aviation emergencies, as authorities work to ensure the continued safety and security of air travel.
